LOTD: Xteener's Barbie Purple Smokey Eyes

I love this look! If you don't know Xteener from Youtube already, you should definitely watch her vids. She is very talented! I love all her makeup videos and she is a whiz at blending eyeshadows. I love her hair too- super shiny!


Here is a recent video and she calls it the Barbie Purple Smokey Eyes. I tried it out today. Mine isn't as good as hers but I did learn that if you use a sticky base on your lids, you can make your eyeshadow colour really stand out. Or you can wet your brush too. I forgot to do that so my colours are a bit muted.

Pretty daisies! Is it daisies?? Well, it inspired me to do this look too!

Products I used:
  • Skinfood BB Cream
  • MAC Select moisture cover NC20
  • Laura Mercier Mineral Powder
  • Nars Eyeshadow Palette Jolie Poupee (the matte purple shade on the left)
  • Shu Uemura Eyeshadows
  • MAC Plumage (matte)
  • BBrown Gel Liner Black Ink
  • Rimmel Kohl Liner "Jungle Green"
  • Loreal Telescopic Mascara
  • Revlon Powder Blush "Sandalwood Beige"
  • Revlon Lipstick "Ginger Rose"
  • MAC "Early Bloomer" Lipgloss

that's an awesome look!! you and your fiance look so cute together :) I have the Revlon creme shadows as a "sticky base" but I never use it (even though Xteeener does) bc it makes my shadows crease even with primer on, any ideas on that? I should just stick to wetting the brush right? And sidenote - I nearly bought the Poupee shadow duo that you have! But I exchanged it for something else bc I had too many purples haha

Becks: Yeah the Nars duos are expensive too! You should try using mac's paint pot as a primer. I think it lasts longer... although I had Urban Decay Primer Potion is good too but havent tried it yet!
